agree with you. >> but i actually feel like -- like, it's a shame that monopoly ever michelle obama focused so much on ingredients and not on cooking. i feel like she missed great opportunity. i think it would have been more powerful for her to get people back in the kitchen than be interested in the ingredients. because, like, we're saying it wasn't really matter what you're cooking. it matters that you are cooking. that you are understanding what it takes to feed yourself. that self-sufficiency and empowerment is valuable to our culture and in your family life. it has so many ramifications, i feel like that was a big thing for the past four years. >> i like that idea. >> even if you're using some kind of terrible cheating factory food or help that roast chicken along. you're still cooking. >> exactly. >> you're still in the kitchen putting your hands in to it. that's the first step. >> learning to cook is the gateway to having an appreciation for finer ingredients or sustainable agricultural. >> i mean that. if you start cooking, you start to realize that food is comprised of mult
profiles i have seen over michele obama. this is a slow rising tide. david gregory didn't get the job just because he was a white male. he is someone who had been a white house correspondent for nbc. he had the skills that were necessary to be a good broadcaster and a good interviewer. the time will come when those jobs will be again available, and there will be a much wider range of people who will be eligible for them. one of them could very well be an african-american. it may be an asian american. i'm not sure. it may be a hispanic american. we are seeing more presents of people with different ethnic backgrounds than just white, anglo and protestant. bryant gumbel succeeded me on "the today show" as the african-american host of "the today show", for example. >> host: for scrotal organ, please go ahead with your question or comment. >> caller: i come from a different journalist background than you, but i feel equally crucial to americans and how they should know what is going on in their world. i was a reporter and an editor at a small, medium-sized weeklies in dailies over the nation fo
of government from a democracy to a conservative christian theocracy and that's why we need to have barack obama and joe biden reelected. because it's terrifying people like paul ryan and mitt romney and michele bachmann, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. rig perry. these are scary, scary people who change our form of government into the conservative christian theocracy by blasting what to say as an atheist i want to say to that woman on the republican line, us atheists as was agnostics are amplified by christians much, much, much more than the church of latter day saints, the mormons are vilified by people like she said, bill clinton and other people. believe me, atheists are the last as well as gays, atheists are specially the last people this country still be vilified and put down and psychologically and physically tortured by right wing christians are in the bill, as an atheist are you enjoying coverage of the values voter summit? >> caller: i'm watching it very skeptically. when they talk about values, like i said, it's a very values they want to impose on the country by legislation. being a
that in this world you need to be engaged, and he has engaged smartly. >> okay. next i want to introduce michele flournoy, she served as undersecretary of defense for policy from february '09 to february of this year. and prior to her confirmation, she helped lead president obama's transition team at the department of defense. in 2007 she cofounded the organization that doug just referred to, the nonpartisan think tank center for a new american security. republicans in states like virginia, notably, are using the impending sequesters as an issue against their democratic opponents. even though the republicans were part of the deal. i want to ask you, how serious should we take this sequester threat, and is there anything democrats can do in response? >> well, i think we do have to be worried about the prospect of sequestration not only because it would impose additional cuts across the board, but because of the mindless way in which the cuts would be imposed. across-the-board cuts, no opportunity to protect priorities, you know, choose where you're going to accept and manage risk. and so i think,
